St Columba's College - a drawing by MT Flynn published in the Summer edition of The Pelican, 1955.
Who was MT Flynn - there's no record of his/her name in the magazine,
nor in Peter Finn's database of ex-WF students.
A parishioner?

Pat McHale kindly wrote the folowing in reply:

"If I'm not mistaken the artist lady Mrs Flynn was art teacher at St. Thomas Aquinas in Edinburgh.
A friend of Father T O'D — she gave us some lessons on the occasional Saturday morning 1960.
She also did the murals at Sancta Maria abbey Nunraw East Lothian, I think"

This was taken before the fire at St Columba's. John thinks that the threesome includes
"Duke" and "Ozzie" — but needs some confirmation. Any ideas ?
Is "Ozzie" the nickname for Thomas Osowski or David O'Sullivan perhaps ?

Maurice Billingsley writes (February 2011)
:

" Roland Duke  and Thomas Ossowski
We had a cold spell which included a manhunt through
The Valley and a tinker camp in the snow.
Thank you Mrs Hughes! "
